The season’s first Derby della Madonnina between AC Milan and Inter Milan is set to go ahead despite a COVID-19 scare. Watch Serie A live.
With as many as six players testing positive for COVID-19, Inter Milan have their task cut out against AC Milan in the season’s first Derby della Madonnina on Saturday.
The players sidelined due to COVID-19 include Alessandro Bastoni, Radja Nainggolan, Roberto Gagliardini and Ashley Young, while midfielder Stefano Sensi is set to miss the tie after picking up a red card in their previous game.
Inter Milan come into the tie on the back of a 1-1 draw against Lazio before the international break.
The Antonio Conte-coached Inter Milan side has had a fine start to the season and sit fifth on the points table with five points from their three games so far.
Meanwhile, AC Milan received a huge boost ahead of the derby with veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning to training earlier this week following his bout with COVID-19.
The former Sweden international has had a flying start to the 2020-21 Serie A season, scoring three goals in two games before COVID-19 forced him to sit out. Back in action, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be eager to carry on from where he left off when the league resumes this weekend.
AC Milan has been one the early pacesetters in the league, winning their three matches so far and are second on the Serie A table, only behind Atalanta who enjoy a superior goal difference.
